STAFF at a care home are celebrating after receiving an award.

Millard House, in Church Street, Bocking, has been given a gold standard for end-of-life care.

The home’s parent company said it was a “very proud moment”.

A spokesman said: “It has taken over a year of hard work and we would like to thank the team at Millard House who also helped us gain this prestigious accreditation.

“The care provided at the end of someone’s life is so very important as it ensures that they are afforded the dignity and care that they deserve right up until the very the end of their time.”
